From the magazine this month:



HOW LONG DOES IT take to really do a city? Seasoned globetrotters tell you that it’s impossible to ever really, truly, get a proper handle on a place but we have a very specific figure in mind. It takes precisely 92 hours. That’s how long the easyJet Traveller team spent in Hamburg for this month’s bumper A-Z guide. In a little less than four days, we met the captains of industry who have helped establish Hamburg as Germany’s new business hub, took in some world-class ballet and sampled the astonishing beer at the country’s first craft brewery. We also checked out the city’s brilliant - and largely unheralded - urban beach scene and hung out with the most rock ’n’ roll football fans on the planet. Our conclusion? Hamburg definitely has the X factor.
